Please remember to remove any toys or hoses from your lawn before each visit. We ask that you also refrain from watering the day of verticutting. If your property includes any gates necessary for accessing the lawn, we ask that you open/unlock these for our crews.
We do not require that you be present for our verticutting service. Through our client portal, you can easily reference the day and time we plan on completing our services to plan accordingly.
You are not required to cut the grass before we verticut, as we mow the grass down to about 2-3 inches in preparation.
We do not provide weed control with this service.
We verticut/seed between September and October.
We spread out 5 pounds of Certified Tall Fescue Blend per 1,000 square feet of turf.
Early fall is the best time of year to verticut/seed cool-season grass.
We provide verticutting/seeding services as a way to help your grass absorb nutrients and moisture more efficiently. Instead of the thatch absorbing all the water and nutrients, your young grass will.
Verticutting is the process of removing the thatch buildup that is on the lawn, allowing the turf to breathe better.
We recommend you water at least 2-3 times per day for short increments of 15 minutes after aeration/seeding. This is referred to as "controlled watering" and can help germinate the seeds without washing them out. Once you see growth, you can resume your normal watering schedule. If you are just aerating your lawn, you do not need to switch over to a controlled watering schedule.
